Asked if the school would be
closed down if an epidemic would
occur, Fuenning replied, "it all
depends on the number of stu

flu. The flu lasts from three to
four days and therefore the isola

can make no recommendations."
Symptoms of the flu to watch
out for are an onset of chills, high

In a brief meeting Tuesday, the

Law, requesting that the Liason

Dr. C. Clyde Mitchell was for

of agricultural economics. Dr.
Mitchell was relieved of his duties
as chairman during the second

degrees from the Universiy of Ne

Jacques Loeb, world-famous physi
ologist. Prominent in civic affairs, he
was director of San Jose City Li
brary for 15 years and director
of San Jose Hospital for 25 years.
His interest in medicine came
from his childhood experie.ices,
when he drove the horse and
buggy while his father, Dr. A. L.
Elder, made long trips to his rural
patients living near Hebron, Neb.
His father died in 1902 after prac

Asked if we are prepared to
meet the situation, Fuenning re
plied, "we have plans that can
be put into operation in case of a
flu epidemic and therefore, I
would say yes.
Treatment consists of rest and
symptomatic treatment of the flu.
Because of plans to treat Asian
flu eases in homes, and since stu
dents have no place to go but
their dormitories, the University
is high on the list for vaccine
priority. Dr. Fuenning said.
Dr. Feunning reported that the
Student Health Center has been
receiving cases of the flu right
along this year and that all had
similar symptoms. He added, that
none of the cases have turned out
to be of Asian type.
So far in this country, flu has
affected roughly some 13,000 peo
ple, a phamplet put out by the
U.S. Department of Health said.
It is probable that the current in

may develop into pandemic pro
portions by late winter or fall.

It was pointed out by Professor

though they could request a report
of the committee's progress. "It
is not right to instruct a commit-

In rewording his original motion,
Buetel said, "The Liason Com

them in writing so the senate will

Stewart, Professor of Commercial
Miss Stewart reported that the
Student Loan service had made
838 loans totalling approximately
$118,000 in the past year. Of these,
584 were emergency loans, which
are limited to $125, totalling $41,

dollars or less while there were
143 loans of $200 or over. Men
needed money worse than women
for according to the report 738 men
were granted loans as against 50
Miss Stewart reported that stu
dent loans were up 33 per cent
over last year. However, because
some of the loan money available
was in the form of grants carry
ing stipulations, there was some
money left in the Student Loan
fund at the end of the year.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said,
"Demands for student loans are
increasing and any addition of
funds would be most welcome."
